Dear Mr. You

By Mary -Louise Parker
Narrated by: Mary-Louise Parker
Length: 5 hours 44 minutes

Dear Mr. You

“Quirky, smart, playful, trippy at times - this is exactly how I imagine Mary-Louise Parker to be, and it's how her book is, too. This is a book full of heart and tenderness, heart-breaking at times, witty at others. It was fascinating to get an insight into who Mary-Louise Parker was before she was MARY-LOUISE PARKER, too - incapable of learning to juggle in what might be my favourite chapter, perennially unpopular at school. Hope for us all, maybe?”
